Whitney Houstons Final and Most Outstanding Performance!
Six-time Grammy Award winner, Whitney Houston (The Body Guard), gives her final and most outstanding performance in Sparkle
, a timeless story that explores the bonds of family, the trials of success and the power of music. Also starring American idol sensation, Jordin Sparks.
In her feature film debut, Sparks stars as Sparkle, a young woman whose big dreams seem almost impossible. Despite being warned against the pitfalls of the music industry by her protective mother (Whitney Houston), Sparkle forms a trio with her sisters (Tika Sumpter and Carmen Ejogo), encouraged by the support of the handsome and ambitious Stix (Derek Luke).
Together, the sisters perform the soul-stirring songs that Sparkle pens, but as their fame grows, so too do the risks of jealousy, self-doubt and insidious temptation. This soulful and sweeping drama is brought to life with a powerful all-star cast including Mike Epps (Jumping the Broom), Omari Hardwick (The Runner), and singer Cee-Lo Green.
In commemoration of Houston's final feature film, the posthumous releas of Sparkle
will debut on the small screen two weeks before the first anniversary of her death. Blu-ray and DVD Bonus features also pay homage to the much-loved and talented star, including a moving featurette, "Tribute to Whitney Houston", that stars Harvey Mason Jr, filmmakers, screenwriters and cast from the film.
A must-see for all Houston fans and film buffs, Sparkle
is available on Blu-ray™ and DVD 31st January 2013.
